Reliefs and Sculptures

My sculpture includes reliefs in plaster and
fabric, mixed media assemblages, and
some ceramics and stone sculpture (mostly
sold).  I have always been fascinated by
relief art, especially Assyrian, Greek, and
Mayan reliefs.  I am intrigued by the
physicality, textures, and changing
patterns of light and shade as one moves
around.  Mosaics, especially, only come
to life and reveal their striking sensuality
when direct light reflects off their irregular
surfaces; this cannot be seen online.


Please visit my GALLERY to see my
paintings and other art in flat media.

Arabesque Series (to right)

These small low-relief wall plaques
are made of plaster, poured into
temporary molds created by pressing
found objects into oil-based modeling
clay. The plaster is then impregnated
with linseed oil, which is absorbed to a
depth of about 1/8 inch, making a very
strong surface. The castings are then
painted with many layers of oil paint,
rubbed, brushed, and rolled onto the
textured surface. The frames are
custom-made.

Heliotrope (to right)

This green soapstone
sculpture was designed
to take advantage of a
narrow stone with a
flat natural surface on
the back. The veins and
inclusions in the stone
give the sculpture an
interesting character.






         Abstract figure sculpture in green soapstone.                                               Face Vase (to right)

This pink alabaster
sculpture doubles
as a vase, or even a
candle- or incense-
holder if you wish.
Created after my
most recent trip to
Mexico, the face
reminds me of the
famous Mexican
sacrificial god,
Chac-Mool.

This wall-hanging
relief sculpture began
with a plaster-and-
fabric cast made from
the face of a friend of
mine. The cast was
then painted and
decorated, and fastened
to a metal screen, along
with additional items.



           Contemporary wall mixed media portrait.              Mayan Heads Bookends (to right)

The mold for these bookends was the clay
model I made for the face of the earlier
sculpture, Heliotrope. I made a plaster cast
from that model and slipcast nine sets of
these bookends. Each set was hand-finished
and glazed differently in several firings.
Each pair is therefore a unique, functional,
ceramic sculpture.

The bookends are weighted with lead, sand,
and plaster, and are heavy enough to
support even the largest books.
